Lexington Legends – A Legendary Start—By John Huang

The one great thing about minor league baseball is that every opening day truly signals a new beginning. It’s out with the old and in with the new. Nowhere does this apply more than with the Lexington Legends. The hometown affiliate of the Kansas City Royals stunk up the league last year finishing in next to last place in the Southern Division with a disappointing 62-75 record. In fact, they’ve been fairly putrid for the past several years, so I’m always looking for signs of change–morsels of hope that things have finally turned around and success is just around the corner.

These Wildcats combined for 26 fouls as the men in the striped suits seem bent on controlling the game instead of letting both teams play a little. Shai Gilgeous-Alexander hit 11-of 12 free throws  in the half, if that tells you how ugly this was. No rhythm at all.  Continue reading A Mess in Atlanta, UK cannot take easy road provided to them

For all the “Whining” coming out of UK’s camp, the Young Wildcats continue to win. I have stated all season that when March rolled around, no one would want to play these Wildcats. It’s just the way it is around Big Blue Nation. It is what we have become accustomed to. Calipari, more often than not, has his young players ready for the NCAA Tournament. Since “Cal” took over at UK, the Cats, when they make the NCAA Tournament, average 3 wins. That equates to 7 Sweet 16 trips in 9 years in the Calipari era. Unprecedented among any other school in the Nation. Continue reading Who is Whining? The Wildcats will play in the South Regional semifinal on Thursday in Atlanta.
